It's rather astounding to see the number of books available on the book stores and being sold. Some of them are brilliant and some, well...

However, I came across a couple of books and was left unsatisfied, wondering what the author was really trying to say. I haven't read much modern books except 2 Nicholas Sparks' books, Harry Potter books and The Alchemist.

Somehow, I stumbled upon Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn a couple of weeks back and started it with huge expectations given I'm fond of psychological thrillers. What I saw till 20 chapters was a rough and childish writing. God, I waited for some sincerity in it but couldn't find any. And had to give up on it after those few chapters. I don't regret it.

I'm a huge Tolkien fan. Love reading Dickens and many authors of old. Their works are full of richness and sincerity and you know they're not writing for JUST money. But most books I've come across disappoint me heavily.

The only ones I treasure are Harry Potter books. And currently reading Percy Jackson. They're decent enough so far.
